Arsenal’s game against Aston Villa, due to take place on Saturday November 7th, has been moved having been selected as one of the pay per view fixtures that weekend.
For the privilege of seeing their team play at 7.15pm on a Sunday evening, fans of both clubs will have to pay £14.95 in the UK or €16.95 in the Republic of Ireland.
It will be our second fixture in a couple of weeks scheduled at that time, following last weekend’s encounter with Leicester City.
Despite the fact there has been a significant objection to the price, and viewing figures are generally poor, supporters are once again expected to shell out top dollar to see their team in action. This will be Villa’s fourth consecutive PPV game.
Last time, Arsenal fans put their money where their mouths were, raising over £40,000 for Islington Giving, an organisation that helps support local, grassroots projects to address poverty and inequality in the borough of the club.
The Arsenal Supporters Trust have had an open dialogue with the club about the PPV situation, you can read details on that here.
If there are further fundraising efforts to demonstrate fan sentiment towards this price point, as well as enabling those who can to help good causes at a particularly difficult time, we’ll make sure to cover them here on the site.
Now for a new feature on Arseblog News, our word of the day. Apropos of nothing, today’s word is ‘Stream’.
